[Feature request] Can we have offline FOLDERS?

[Feature request] Can we have offline FOLDERS?

Mike Q.4
New member | Level 2

Is there any plans to add functionality to allow Offline viewing of FOLDERS and not just FILES? Dropbox competitors have this built in, I use it quite a bit, and can not deploy Dropbox without it.

Help...I am, looking to upgrade to paid account but this is a show stopper. Thank you for your time

Yes, this would be really awesome feature. That's the only reason i'm not upgrading to paid dropbox account. I'm waiting to see if MS release something similar for their OneDrive app.

Dont hold your breath, MS had that in OneDrive and removed that with Windows10

Same here - I'd really appreciate it if we could make FOLDERS available offline and not only FILES. Any chance you could build this in, Dropbox?? Thanks!!

So much for being able to access my book library on all devices. There's no way I'm going through hundreds of files to make them offline. guess I'll have to dust off the ol' USB cable and copy the files myself.

@Tom L. - what do you mean by using the USB cable and doing it yourself? Is there a way one can move the files on the iPhone with a USB cable? Thanks!

@Teresa H. I don't have an iphone. I plan to copy my files to my android tablet but I don't see why you couldn't do the same on an iphone. I've copied media files to itunes on my ipad with a usb cable.

what about iCloud - is that a better paid(although more expensive) option? Only issue is sharing things with people not in Mac or iOS...they allow offline saving of folders(as does sugarsync- but that isn't integrated with Office for iOS, so i might stop that too)
